HUNT VALLEY — The Maryland State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (MSSDAR) selected Cookie Brohawn as one of their recipients of a 2015 Community Service Award. Mrs. Brohawn received this award during the MSSDAR State Conference at Hunt Valley.

In 2014, Mrs. Brohawn had previously received the Community Service Award presented by the General Perry Benson Chapter. The Community Service Award is a non-competitive award, honoring dedicated service to the community.

The Community Service Awards Committee was established by the NSDAR National Board of Management in April 1995 as an opportunity for chapters and states to recognize worthy individuals and organizations for outstanding unpaid voluntary achievements in cultural, educational, humanitarian, patriotic, historical, citizenship, or environmental conservation endeavors.

Mrs. Brohawn, representing the Chorus of Dorchester, was recognized for 40 years of service as Director of this all-volunteer community chorus. With a usual membership of 60-80 singers, the group continues to perform at community special events and presents an annual Christmas concert.
